I like this one compared to my Makita compact brushless recip saw (I returned it because of always gets stuck). I returned my 12 fuel hackzall also because of lack of power or underpowered (I used it mainly for pruning and light work). I tried m18 hackzall and still underpowered. Maybe, those only best use for plumbing and electrical work. This thing is a beast! It cuts faster and you can adjust the speed too. Hope this helps.

Looks good, a few of the other tool sites have the same price too if you have a preference.

The only issue is the brushed reciprocating saws eats up batteries like crazy. But depends on your use.

True--dumped all my brushed tools as I work off lifts or on the roof often--nothing is worse than working yourself into a tough position and having to change a battery.

This is one tool that can benefit high voltage battery, especially if there is negligible price difference between 2 items. HD or any other tools shop has 40V version for $220, and if combined with one more 40V tool, Makita is running a promo for one free 40V 4A battery.
It's not even worth $50 for soon to be obsoleted tool.
